When I was in treatment (I know I talk about it a lot, it just really changed my life), it was all about me. It was all about doing things that made me love me for who I was. I learned how to show myself grace on the bad days. I learned that not every … More Be Your Own Damn Valentine!
What-what, what-what? Since you asked… Working in retail for the past 5 years, I’ve never had the desire to really go thrift shopping. After hearing Macklemore’s song, I definitely thought about it more and how cool it could be but I never actually went out and did it. I always got such good deals at … More Hey Macklemore, Can We Go Thrift Shopping?

When I found out that this was a museum within driving distance from me, I bought tickets INSTANTLY!! With all of the horrible things happening in the … More My “Happy Place”
As I sit on my couch writing this post, I reflect on the last 3 years of my life. To say that time flies is an understatement. Attending my brother’s high school graduation was so surreal and brought me right back to my own. My brother was a Freshman in high school when I was … More “The Graduate”
(Now, I know that “daycation” is not a word, but I do intend to make it one). Moving on from winter (and ex-boyfriends), I decided to revamp my blog. With vibrant, happy colors and silly poses, here we go again. Today, my best friend of 20 years and I decided to take a little photo … More Palm Springs “Daycation”
